  • "Flight International: Dragon Slayer" - November 3, 2006
    The US Army battle laboratory is to buy several prototypes of the Miraterre Flight Systems Dragon Slayer hand-launched micro unmanned air vehicle (UAV) to develop it into a low-cost, expendable surveillance tool for soldiers...
  • Compétition internationale d'avions espions miniatures: Un succès qui suscite un intérêt international - (cached)- October 5, 2005
    5 octobre 2005 – Une équipe de cinq étudiants en génie de l'Université de Sherbrooke est arrivée première dans 4 catégories et 7e au cumulatif lors d'une importante compétition internationale d'avions espions miniatures, à Garmish-Partenkirchen, en Allemagne.
    L'événement nommé US-European Micro-Aerial Vehicle Technology Demonstration and Assessment a accueilli du 19 au 22 septembre 17 équipes provenant de partout à travers le monde. Chacune devait présenter un petit véhicule conçu par les membres et capable d'effectuer de la surveillance aérienne durant 30 minutes afin de détecter un terroriste dans un rayon de 500 m...
  • Flight International: "French School To Go It Alone" - (cached) October 4, 2005
    French national civil aviation school ENAC plans to demonstrate autonomous formation flight with two micro air vehicles in November. Two 1.4m (4.6ft)-wingspan, electrically powered Twin Star model aircraft are being fitted with GPS receivers and radio transmitters for the tests, in which they will fly about 10m apart, one following the other...
  • Flight International: "Teams chase MAV prize" - (cached) - September 27, 2005
    Open-source software, the foam-like material Depron and tiny infrared attitude controllers were common design elements among the 16 teams competing at the first US-European Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV) Technology Demonstration and Assessment event, held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany last week...
  • "Flight International: Down Sizing" - September 26, 2005
    As the first generation of micro-scale UAVs, exemplified by the remote-control Wasp, reaches the hands of military users, the US Army’s MAV competition in Garmisch-Partenkirchen provided a glimpse of the future. The winning University of Arizona team’s fixed-wing MAV transmitted video while flying autonomously via GPS waypoints using an open-source flight-control software package, called Paparazzi, originally developed by France’s national aviation school Enac.

  • "PapaBench : A Free Real-Time Benchmark" (365K PDF)
    This paper presents PapaBench, a free real-time benchmark and compares it with the existing benchmark suites. It is designed to be valuable for experimental works in WCET computation and may be also useful for scheduling analysis. This benchmark is based on the Paparazzi project that represents a real-time application, developed to be embedded on different Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV).
